SuDS and drainage infrastructure

Drainage is fundamental to the provision of a sustainable environment in towns and cities. HR Wallingford can address drainage issues to help prevent frequent flooding, provide an environment resilient to extreme events and protect water courses from combined sewerage discharges and from stormwater runoff. We are at the forefront of research into SuDS and the development of SuDS guidance.

The hydraulic performance of drainage systems can be assessed using  traditional 1D and newer 2D modelling techniques, as well as advanced risk based methods. This  requires experienced engineers and drainage modellers familiar with tools such as InfoWorks ICM.

With the growing need to meet environmental concerns, the concept of sustainable drainage systems (SuDS) is becoming increasingly important. The move towards the use of SuDS requires a shift in the approaches to drainage with a wider range of skills than simply an understanding of hydraulics.
